Welcome and congrats Melissa! I'm Jennifer, due with my 1st on Oct. 1st. I had a small subchorionic hemmorage found at 7 weeks. The doc put me on one low dose aspirin per day. At my 9 week u/s, the hemorrage was gone. I am now off of the low dose aspirin. I hope you have the same outcome.
I have a small SCH. It was picked up at about 8 weeks and a few days after I had been bleeding/spotting on and off for several weeks.
Risks of miscarriage are related to the size and position of the SCH. The smaller it is the better. The good news is something like 98% of them will either bleed out (which mine seems to be doing, I still have small amounts of blood every now and then) or it will be reabsorbed by 20 weeks.
I was advised to take it easy until at least 12-14 weeks, and even beyond if I am still bleeding.
When I was pregnant with my son I was bleeding pretty bad at 6 weeks and they determined by u/s that I also had a SC bleed, they never warned me about miscarriage said that it would heal itself and it did. Take it easy and let it heal itself. Don't get negative! Thats where people going wrong!
Welcome to the board... KUP!

Hi Melissa! I remember you from the AP board. Congrats on your pregnancy! I've heard several women here and elsewhere say they had the same thing and it healed itself. I hope that's what happens in your case as well!
Last pregnancy I had one and they said they normally heal by themselves and it is nothing. I don't remember them reminding me about miscarriage (maybe they should have) I will be thinking about you and keep us updated!
